I have been hired to design a web app with a landing page.
Instead of the developers working on the web app and the landing page, I want to tell my client that I can design and build the landing page, and then we can connect it to the web app after the developers complete it.
What is the best way to connect the Webflow landing page with the web app?
Generally speaking, no. For example if your domain is website.com, then you can add an A record in your DNS registrar for the sub domain app.website.com.
It depends where your webapp is being hosted. If your developers are using Webflow then yes, otherwise it depends on where they are hosting. There are services like Firebase with very generous free tiers that can be used for this.
Could you explain the process and the way you have chosen finally when the things are done? I just got really interested in web app architecture, explored a lot of threads here, managed to find more here but when it comes to learning new things, the more info you have, the better.
Please clarify what you mean by just a “landing page”. There can be many different questions that means.
Just a designed index page with the rest of the domain being a web application (not built in the web application)?
This would not be practical, due to other landing pages (on the web-app front end) being different from Webflows style. Exporting the index page would be smarter, but the sever load would drastically cost more to meet what Webflows sites can handle (I’m talking when you’ve got 1k plus users). Also SSL and TLS are on you to handle.
If your question is for connecting a webflow (front end site) to a server side (back end)?
